Our Products

We source our natural thatch products from around the world. Options include Mexican palm, which we offer in runner rolls, panels and round umbrella covers, as well as Tahitian (or Fiji) thatch and African cape reed, which are available as panels. All products are made by trained artisans using traditional techniques, and they are inspected upon arrival in our warehouse. The result is a natural thatch product of impeccable quality.

Natural thatch will exhibit some slight variation in size, color and consistency from piece to piece — but this is part of what gives it such a unique, tropical character. We also offer artificial thatch roof materials, which mimic the look and feel of a natural product.

Benefits of a Natural Thatch Roof

The most obvious benefit of a natural thatch roof is the unmistakable character it brings to a room. No matter where you are in the world, you and your guests/customers will be instantly transported to a warmer, more welcoming place. For these reasons, thatch is an excellent choice for Tiki bars, Palapas, cabanas, patios and more.

However, there are benefits to choosing natural thatch that extend beyond its unique appearance. Thatch is one of the most sustainable building materials — palms and reeds are both fast-growing plants that require comparatively little resources to grow and harvest. As well, thatch is lightweight and versatile. One of its key advantages is that, if one panel becomes damaged, it can be replaced without the need for an expensive or time-consuming repair.

Natural Thatch Roofing - Naturally Weather Resistant

Our Natural Thatch is an ideal construction material for roofing irregularly shaped structures. It is best-suited for dry, low-rainfall climates. If you live in a high humidity, high rainfall zone our Synthetic Thatch is ideal for you!

Thatch is naturally weather-resistant, doesn’t absorb large amounts of water and won't increase roof weight. A 45-degree roof pitch will allow precipitation to travel down the steep slope of the roof. Thatch is a natural insulator in both warm and cold weather and often works better than conventional building insulation, like fiberglass. Thatch provides good acoustic insulation for quiet living conditions when applied to low, rounded roofs.

Hurricane force wind tests of up to 100 mph in California have demonstrated that, when applied correctly, thatch has good wind resistance properties. Natural Thatch is easy to use and lighter than traditional building materials. Natural Thatch reduces deforestation, is naturally beautiful and will transform any area into a tropical environment. We carry only top quality Mexican Thatch, African Thatch, Fuji Thatch, Viroreed™ (artificial thatch) and much more.
